Posted by National Association of Charitable Gift Planners on Nov 1, 2017 7:30:00 AM

Thank you for your membership to the National Association of Charitable Gift Planners. Our members inspire our vision and purpose as a national organization. It is important to us that you are a part of our network, have access to your benefits, and feel supported in your career. 

Our Vision

The National Association of Charitable Gift Planners (CGP) is the leading organization setting standards for charitable gift planners. We bring members together to learn, and advocate. We provide education and resources that enrich and advance careers. We connect colleagues at all levels through our national network—including those who defined the field. We exist to serve our distinguished profession and bring to life the art and science of charitable gift planning.

Our Purpose

The strategic direction of CGP is set through the Ends Policies established by the Board of Directors. The current Ends Policies, which were revised in October 2015, are the product of extensive membership research, task force recommendations and board inquiry. These policies provide guidance in the development of all services and initiatives of our organization.

"During the October CGP board meeting, education was discussed and determined to be the top priority for 2018. At this time, CGP is developing a strategic plan for education and professional development programming to increase our offerings and address the varied needs of our diverse membership," said President and CEO Michael Kenyon. "CGP is dedicated to helping our members at each stage of their career through access to relevant resources and professional development programming that helps them better serve their donors, organizations and themselves."
